Smile Your Blues Name!

We all know Muddy Waters and Blind Lemon Jefferson, and we all know that lots of old time blues and jazz musicians had nicknames that they went by. It was considered an honor by most to get a nickname to go by, and now YOU can have one too.

This is pretty simple. Most of you will have a first name, middle name, and last name, and that's all you need. Maybe you have a confirmation name or something you can use, it doesn't matter. Take your three initials, look in the tables below, and take the name associated with your initial until you have your blues name. Then feel free to earn it

First Name:
A=Fat; B=Muddy ; C=Crippled; D=Old; E=Texas; F=Hollerin'; G=Ugly; H=Brown; I=Happy; J=Boney; K=Curly; L=Pretty; M=Jailhouse; N=Peg Leg; O=Red; P=Sleepy; Q=Bald; R=Skinny; S=Blind; T=Big; U=Yella; V=Toothless; W=Screamin'; X=FatBoy; Y=Washboard; Z=Steel-Eye

Middle Name:
A=Bones; B=Money; C=Harp; D=Legs; E=Eyes; F=Lemon; G=Killer; H=Hips; I=Lips; J=Fingers; K=Boy; L=Liver; M=Gumbo; N=Foot; O=Mama; P=Back; Q=Duke; R=Dog; S=Bad Boy; T=Baby; U=Chicken; V=Pickles; W=Sugar; X=Cracker; Y=Tooth; Z=Smoke

Last Name:
A=Jackson; B=McGee; C=Hopkins; D=Dupree; E=Green; F=Brown; G=Jones; H=Rivers; I=Malone; J=Washington; K=Smith; L=Parker; M=Lee; N=Thompkins; O=King; P=Bradley; Q=Hawkins; R=Jefferson; S=Davis; T=Franklin; U=White; V=Jenkins; W=Bailey; X=Johnson; Y=Blue; Z=Allison

So, look yours up and add it on. Let's see what we get!


Boney Harp Bailey
